Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
R. S. Lull 1904Bipedal in gait, the manus impressing only when resting. Pes tetradactyl, digitigrade with elongate metatarsal segment upon which the animal sits (calcigrade) while at rest. Hallux half rotated, insistent, and sub functional, but rarely impressing. Pes ornithoid.
Manus pentadactyl, the digits ranging through an angle of 180°. Phalangeal formula: 2. 3. 4. 3. 2. Claws bluntly rounded.
G. Gierlinski 1991Normally bipedal, but sometimes also quadrupedal. Pes functionally tridactyl. Hallux rarely impressed. Pedal digits II, III and IV tend to be subequal in length. In the trackway, the pes is directed forward. Manus imprints are four-toed or five-toed.
